Patient Comments (2)
Westminster, MA |
Ive had to tell the doctor the same information repeatedly about my pain and treatment at other facilities. He walks out of the office without even saying goodbye, very awkward. I dont feel he has any empathy for his patients, I feel like a criminal sitting in the office. My wife is also a patient and agrees with me on these issues.
Worcester, MA |
The dr was not very patient friendly , had no interest in my actual pain issue, treated me like I was drug seeking when I was clearly open to any alternatives. He abruptly left the discussion, I did a urine test and based on a very very low level of legal marijuana, less than the lab detection limits are supposed to be. The dr decided to deny me any kind of care based on something I was very up front about. According to the new law it is illegal for professional to deny needed medical care.
